What We Think
A large part of Indian highways passes through rural areas where stray animals are a common appearance. That is why it is advised to always pay attention to the road while driving. Most accidents take place due to overspeeding and careless overtaking in addition to disobeying traffic regulations. It is high time we start becoming responsible drivers and following traffic regulations vehemently. Apart from that, no one has the right to take matters into their own hands and start assaulting the other person. That is bound to have severe consequences.
